9780312386986The Glassblower of Murano is an easy read that at first I found predictable. I decided, however, to read it when I was on a trip to Venice and this absolutely transformed my experience as it painted such a true and vivid picture of life in the city both past and present. It brought the story and the city to life in a way they wouldn’t have been had I read it at home or just blindly flicked through tour books.

Set in Venice, Italy.
